Finger Lakes has seen some o the greatest jockeys and Thoroughbreds in the history o thesport grace its grounds, including Hall o Fame riders Angel Cordero, Pat Day, Julie Kroneand Bill Shoemaker. On September 24, 1978, Steve Cauthen, resh o guiding Afrmed to aTriple Crown sweep in 1978, attracted a crowd o 11,030 that wagered a single-day,on-track record o $765,580.But arguably no appearance was more exciting than Funny Cide’s run in the $100,000Wadsworth Memorial Handicap on July 4, 2007. The frst and only Kentucky Derby winnerto ever race at Finger Lakes, did so in style charging rom behind and pulling away downthe stretch to win, in what later turned out to be the fnal race o his distiguished career.Over 11,000 were on hand that day, the largest crowd in nearly 30 years.Fio Rito, however, who stands above all others in Finger Lakes racing lore. In 1981, Fio Rito,a locally-based horse who was named New York State Horse o the Year in 1980, steppedinto the national spotlight by winning the Whitney Handicap at Saratoga. Fio Rito dominatedat Finger Lakes throughout his career, winning 19 o 27 starts. Upon his passing in 1996 atthe age o 21, Fio Rito was buried in the Finger Lakes infeld.
Since 2004, Finger Lakes has transormed itsel into a multi-aceted entertainmentdestination. Following the addition o video gaming machines in February 2004, theproperty has experienced a tremendous resurgence, with nearly two million visitors
enjoying gaming and racing annually. An expansion in 2013 will enhance several amenitiesby including more gaming space, a 102-seat restaurant and a eature bar/lounge.Highlights rom the 2012 campaign include Wilredo Rohena capturing the riding title with138 wins. It marked the frst time since 2001 anyone other than John Davila, Jr. claimedthe top jockey crown. Davila fnished second with 129 wins. Chris Englehart continued hisdominance o the trainer standings, winning his tenth consecutive title, and 12th overall.
Finger Lakes will host several stakes during 2013, headlined by the New York Derby inJuly. The Derby is the second leg o the Big Apple Triple or New York-bred 3-year-olds,which begins with the Mike Lee Handicap at Belmont Park in late June, and concludeswith the Albany Handicap at Saratoga in mid-August.
